I chose this lower more for its low cost, than its low weight. that savings I was able to put into a nicer upper. ...this was the theory anyway. regarding the upper alone, it is quite light. I also have a SW M&P15, and holding the two lowers shows a very noticeable weight savings in the poly lower. looking at the trigger, it is definitely odd to see polymer parts, instead of metal. exercising the trigger showed it to be on the heavy side, but very crisp, and very short. reset was a nice, positive thunk.
